Let me start with a positive- the food is completely worth it, so that's why I gave 3, instead of 2 stars. Secondly, the waitors are very friendly, so it's nothing to do with the actual service of the waitors...but the timing...goodness. I'm not sure...More

This restaurant sits right on the water, across from where they dock the pirate ship. You can watch the water taxis go by or other leisure boats while you eat lunch or dinner. Great seafood menu, wonderful salads, fresh and crispy.

We ate here a couple of times. The food is good and there is a good selection. They also have a sushi menu which was also very popular. There was live music outside on the terrace.
